To mark the 35th anniversary of the Gold Eagles, the United States Mint has introduced a new reverse image. Gone is Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of bald eagles that has graced the reverse since 1986. The US Mint began 2021 coining with the original design combinations on the coins and now completes the switch.

This makes the 2021 release of the Gold Eagles the first in its history to not only receive a design refresh, but also the first-ever to feature two different product releases. BU and Proof Gold Eagles struck with 2021 dates through mid-2021 feature the original Type 1 designs. From mid-2021 onward, Type 2 coins are in production with the new reverse available across the BU, Proof, and Burnished collections.

The obverse side of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles features the 1907 design of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This visual has been enhanced with the Type 2 release to bring back some of the visual touches to the Capitol Building, sun rays, torch, and stars just as Saint-Gaudens had intended in his original 1907 artwork.

On the reverse face of 2021-W Proof Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins is the new bald eagle design from Jennie Norris. A dedicated wildlife enthusiast, Ms. Norris’s design captures the natural splendor and grace of the bald eagle. This left-profile vision of its head goes into great detail on the plumage, eye, and beak of the creature.

These 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Type 2 coins come with a protective capsule and a black presentation box. The presentation box ships with an outer sleeve that has an artistic rendering of Ms. Norris’s new reverse eagle design on its cover. The included Certificate of Authenticity has a depiction of Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty.
